The Church organized a new stake in Georgia on August 16th. The Newnan Georgia Stake was organized from a division of the Columbus Georgia Stake, Fayetteville Georgia Stake, and Powder Springs Georgia Stake. The new stake includes the following six wards and three branches: the Carrollton, Flat Creek, Newnan, Peachtree City, Sharpsburg, and Summer Grove Wards, and the LaGrange, Lanett, and West Georgia YSA Branches. The Newnan Georgia Stake is the Church's third new stake organized in the past two years after the Coal Mountain Georgia Stake (2018) and the Winder Georgia Stake (2020). There are now 19 stakes in Georgia. [1]

Atlanta Georgia Temple[]


The Atlanta Georgia Temple is the 21st operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is the first built in the Southeastern United States and only the second built east of the Mississippi River since 1846. Located on the north side of the Atlanta metro area, it stands on a gentle hillside in the community of Sandy Springs. Highlighting the holy structure is a wall of heavenly stained glass that softly glows at night beneath the temple's single spire. It was the first of 89 temples to be dedicated by church president Gordon B. Hinckley.
